Breakfast at the hotel. Start your adventure by taking part in a guided city tour —everything from the “Sanhattan” skyscrapers to the old-world colonial architecture in a captivating fusion of old meets new.

Begin the tour at the hotel. Walk down the city’s main avenue, visit the cobblestoned streets of Lastarría, known for its colonial mansions, get lost in the beauty of Santa Lucia Hill and stop by a panoramic viewpoint to gaze across Santiago and learn more about the city's history. From there, head over to the Plaza de Armas, home to the Cathedral of Santiago (the former national congress), the imposing government house La Moneda and the Plaza de la Constitución.

Finally, visit the Central Market, a key gastronomic point of Santiago, and stop by a lapis lazuli store. These local handicrafts make a great gift to bring home. Return to your hotel and overnight stay in Santiago de Chile.

The trip was amazing...

I used them last year for a two week South American trip (Chile, Patagonia, Argentina, Iguazú Falls and Rio). The trip was amazing....everything went smoothly, without a hitch. Hotels were nice. Tour guides spoke good English and were lots of fun.
